  • Cardigan, West Wales is the home of Hiut Denim Co. The small welsh town has a population of roughly 4000 people and until 2002 almost 400 of those were working in manufacturing. Marks & Spencer had their last remaining UK factory in Cardigan, for almost 40 years the factory produced 35,000 pairs of Jeans a week for the British retailer. Then, in 2002, M&S closed the factory and moved its denim production to Morocco, citing cheaper labour costs.
.
16 years later the town now has a new employer. For the past five years it has become home to a high-end jeans-maker – the Hiut Denim Company. Founded in 2011 by proud Welshman Mr Hieatt who decided there was no better place to set up shop; nowhere else in the UK could you find such a rich history of jeans-making.

  • Employing machinists who had previously worked in the old factory and still held their decades of jeans-making skills, Mr Hieatts’ ambition is for the factory to one day employ the same number of denim masters as M&S.
.
When the music is loud and the coffee is strong, the Grand Masters can make around 100 pairs of Hiut’s a week… Hiut are there to try and make the best jeans they can and not the most jeans they can.

  • The experience included a very intriguing talk on the exceptionally traditional distillery and its produce. We were then lucky enough to try four of Glen Scotia’s whiskies, all with their very own exquisite favours. We were taught the correct method of tasting; important so the alcohol fumes to not distort your sense of smell and taste.
